REI convertable jacket/vest on sale on 10/09/2007 05:44:46 MDT Print View

I hadn't heard of this jacket before but I think those here will like it. It's primaloft one and pertex quantum with zip off sleeves. It's on sale for $100 right now at REI, both online and in stores. It reminds me a LOT of my thermawrap, and I'd have bought one if I didn't already have the thermawrap. It's a few ounces heavier, but still very light. The medium fit me well whereas I wear a large thermawrap.

I wonder if you lose much heat out of the arm zippers, but a neat design!

REI vs Thermawrap on 10/09/2007 22:27:02 MDT Print View

The REI is 15oz advertized weight vs 8.8 for the Thermawrap which is 111.95 on sale at Backcountry.com and $105 in some sizes on Amazon. That's quite a difference in weight. For 15oz and a light insulated jacket, I would recommend the Marmot Driclime windshirt which can be found on sale in the $50 range and is a very vesatile garment (my XL size is 16oz, advertized weight is 13oz) http://www.rei.com/REI-Outlet/OM/style/756845
